Style Icon: Dr. Tobias Fünke

As much as I enjoy discussing Lucille and Lindsay Bluth's gorgeous wardrobes as a personal source of inspiration,  one cannot deny that Tobias also has a distinct and valuable style point of view.
Spring Break w/ fellow Never Nude Phillip Litt (unfortunately their condition is still not officially recognized by the DSM-IV)

After the jump, I create a couple of fabulous (if I do say so myself) outfits for summer  inspired by Mr. F!

Much like Lindsay has her cream booties (see the post here), Tobias also has his own signature footwear which he pairs with a variety of ensembles. A couple of examples of his brown Arizona Birkenstocks and grey socks:
Directing a High School Shakespeare Production

Pilot Episode: Pirate costume for the Boat Party
Piperlime's spring campaign also features socks and sandals! Dolce Vita Wedges, Tucker Dress, Hive & Honey necklace (Check out the "Looks We Love" section for details)

As evidenced by his dress, Tobias is like all therapists I've ever met in that he is vaguely involved with the East. My theory is that if you listen to everyone's pain all day the only conclusion that can be reached it that life is suffering. This is why all therapists are at least a little bit Buddhist.

Dr. Fünke's 100% Natural Good Time Family Band Solution!

His Ethnic/Post Hippy look just happens to be in perfect alignment with this season's trends. Tobias' bold style can easily be translated to woman's wear. Here is an ladies outfit incorporating these key Tobias elements: jean cut-offs, Birkenstocks, and a bold tribal/ethnic print.

A high-end Joie tunic with an affordable pair of cutoff shorts from Old Navy.  And of course to finish it of:
Birkenstock "Vaduz"
Banana Republic Tribal Necklace

Here's another outfit great for a hot summer day that incorporates the tribal print in the form of these funky printed shorts by Myne. I'd like to think that if Tobias was a woman, he'd rock these. There is already enough patten the shorts that I chose a nice white Joie tank (a Rachel Zoe pick nonetheless!)

To accessorize, add a structural purse and another pair of  birkenstocks. There were so many fun tribal statement jewelry pieces right now at Banana (such as the one above), Old Navy & Piperlime I couldn't choose!
